Elise Stefanik issued this statement after the endorsement: "I want to thank Matt Doheny for his support. Matt waged a hard fought primary and we respect and appreciate his decision to give Republicans their best opportunity to win back our seat for the North Country. Now is the time to unite not just Republicans, but members of the Independence Party and Democrats interested in bringing new ideas and a new generation of leadership to Washington on behalf of New York’s 21st Congressional District."
Doheny conceded to Stefanik following the results of the New York Primary on June 24. The endorsement means that Matt Doheny won’t be campaigning this fall.
